Harbour protection and hybrid threats discussed in Brussels

Today Hybrid CoE organized a workshop on port protection and hybrid threats together with the European Defence Agency.

The workshop focused on the broad multifaceted nature of the harbour protection and the implications on capability development in support of force protection and mobility. Ports are part of national and European critical infrastructure, as the failure to keep them operational would have immediate economic and social consequences.  The purpose of the workshop was to raise awareness of harbour protection and its increasing importance against the background of possible hybrid threats. Discussion covered issues such as digitalization, communications, energy provision, and financial flows and how the loss of these services could affect port operations and thus supply chain management.

Workshop hosted high-level professionals and speakers coming from policy domain, military leadership and industry.
